May 11, 2023— The FCC issues the first-ever robocall blocking order against One Eye.
The FCC’s Enforcement Bureau ordered voice service providers to block and cease accepting voice traffic from international gateway provider One Eye, LLC.
Gateway providers serve as the on-ramps to U.S. phone networks for calls from outside the country, and they have important obligations to block illegal robocall traffic from arriving to consumers.
The robocall campaigns facilitated by One Eye pertained to the impersonation of a major financial institution and claims of “preauthorized order(s)” placed in consumers’ names.
This order marks the first time the FCC has ordered carriers to block traffic from another carrier or gateway facilitator. It seems after years of dealing with robocalls, the FCC is finally making headway into stopping this nuisance.
